Curiosity in Barcelona

April 18, 2018
by Alison Heywood
Curiosity and creativity lie at the core of who I am as a cognitive science major. The field is unique in that it is a blend of many disciplines. It encompasses psychology, philosophy, computer science, and more, and integrates them into a comprehensive major for those who want to learn it all. In many ways, I have found Barcelona to be a lot like cognitive science. It is a blend of rich culture and history, beautiful beaches, delicious food, and exciting nightlife. I studied abroad to expand my horizons and experience it all, and that is exactly what I have been able to do here. Barcelona is the perfect destination for those with a curious mind, as there are an infinite number of things to experience. I have been eagerly exploring hidden restaurants, funky bars, and historic sites throughout the city, and I look forward to discovering even more of what it has to offer.
